 So the Mom showed me the ingredient list for a double batch of gingerbread; and asked how much stuff to buy. "How much stuff? How the heck should I know? Does anyone have any idea how many batches the average mega mansion takes? Or how much this is going to cost? Not to mention all the decorations and candy!
  I do have an idea in mind... It hit me when I made the first response.
But keeping it to realistic proportions is a challenge all to itself!

We make a house that's about 12x12 every year (not mega mansion, but decent sized) and we use one batch of dough (and have a little left over for "decorations" or accents).  I don't know how big the "mega mansion" in your head is, but maybe my comparison will help!

Oh, Thanks! I'm thinking about 18" in size. So Maybe 2 or 3 batches should work. It can't be huge, just a small version of a huge house!

I'm excited about this, I've been procrastinating studying for exams by looking up awesome ideas for a gingerbread house! It might take me all break to get what I want out of it but I will do it!

We got into the gingerbread mode tonight, but with cookies.  Mom also bought me the kit house, just to practice with. Since I never made a house before, she said it was a good idea to make the kit before making the real one for the challenge. I haven't started it, but my ideas for the big house are coming together!

I've never made gingerbread, or even a gingerbread house, but a $250 shopping spree at etsy seems like the perfect reason to try!
